The mum-of two, who as struggled with substance abuse in the past, then tweeted again writing: “I’m ok tbh had much worse when I was in full blown addiction but not getting any younger and the shock was actually the worst of it.

“Phone blocked and new one on the way”.

However this isn’t the first time Daniella has been mugged.

Back in 2017 while on holiday in Spain, she was walking back to her apartment when two men on bikes grabbed her bag, pulling her into the road.

The former Celebrity Big Brother contestant told The Sun at the time: "F***ing hell, I’m shook up," the former Celebrity Big Brother contestant said of the incident.

"I’m an old girl now. It could have been a lot worse.

"I was just walking along with my bag on my shoulder, kerbside, and I wasn’t in the road. They must have obviously gone past a few times.

"I’m literally walking along one minute on the phone and I just felt something pull me fast. It was like when someone pushes you to go by fast.
